Approximately one in six drivers in the U.S. is driving without insurance. In recent years the trend had been improving but the current economic conditions have triggered an increase in the uninsured motorist rate. There don’t appear to be any areas of the country that are not impacted by the increase and people in Atlanta are affected just like everywhere else. The volume of traffic and incidence of auto accidents are now compounded by the high likely hood that the other party may not have insurance. Most of us can understand the need to make hard choices in these economic times but when you’ve been involved in an accident with someone who has chosen to drive without insurance it’s hard.
Georgia law requires insurance carriers to offer uninsured motorist coverage. With the number of uninsured or underinsured drivers on the road it makes selecting the coverage a desirable point of protection for your family. If you have the coverage and are involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist you will likely have to rely on the coverage under your policy. But, what if the cost of the injuries suffered exceeds the amount of your insurance coverage? That’s when it’s complicated and you will need assistance to help you get the compensation you are due.
The legal implications of dealing with injury caused by an uninsured motorist are complicated. If this has happened to you get the advice and support you need as soon as possible from a qualified auto accident attorney.
